Sustainable cooling has enormous potential to reduce the impacts that increased cooling demand has on the ozone layer, climate, and environment, and at the same time, help cut costs and adapt to rising temperatures. But how can we accelerate the uptake of sustainable cooling technologies and natural refrigerants to realise these benefits? In this 1.5-hour event, we introduced viewers to our holistic approach to accelerating the shift to sustainable cooling and implementation of international ozone and climate commitments. Additionally, the event spoke more about the programme and featured Cool Up partner country governments.

Speakers include:
  • Dr. Christian Meineke, Germany, Head of Unit, Fundamental Aspects of Chemical Safety, Chemicals Legislation / Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, and Nuclear Safety (BMU)
  • Dr. Ezzat Lewis, Egypt, Head of National Ozone Unit / Egyptian Environmental Affairs Agency (EEAA)
